DIY: Make Cute Hang Out Invitation Card - Easy Tutorial

Card making can be a fun, rainy day project for everyone. Card designs don't have to be complicated, plus, making cards according to themes is a lot easier. Here'a an easy hang out invitation card to try out!

What You Need:
  1. A2 top folding card base
  2. Sponge dauber - by Imagin Craftrs (can be replaced with make up sponge)
  3. Gel pen
  4. Colour marker or any colour medium
  5. Background template
  6. VersaColor 159 Mountain lake
  7. VersaColor 160 Winter Green
  8. VersaCraft 139 Pale Aqua
  9. VersaMagic Aquatic Splash
  10. Acrylic block
  11. Glue
  12. Double sided foam tape
  13. Black pigment ink by Brilliance Tsukineko
  14. Artline200 0.4tip 
Step 1: Get your ink and dauber ready!

Step 2: Place your template and secure it with washi tape

Step 3: Dauber time!

...And this is what you will get! Easy peasy! If you are a perfectionist, it might get a little frustrating when you don't get the patterns perfectly inked! Haha! Maybe, try playing a soothing music in the bakcground and give yourself some time to give it a shot. Test it on a separate piece of paper.

Step 4: Selecting your stamp image
For this project, I'm using Happy Pandas by My Favourite Things (MFT)

Step 5 : Ink your image
Try to leave a wet surface when you are inking your image here because we are going to do embossing in the next step.

Step 6: Heat emboss
I love using heat emboss to make my stamped image look more appealing and shiny. It also gives you a texture finished which I enjoy touching too! Haha!

Step 7: Add on
Mr. Panda looked kind of plain to me; so I decided to give him a smarter look! Drew a shirt for him with an Artline 200 0.4 tip.

Step 8: Colouring 

 Step 9: Cut-out the image

Step 10: Adding messages and touch ups

YAY! You've made it! 

I have been receiving emails asking me where do I get my stamp sets from. I usually order it from SimonSaysStamp but they are all in USD. Malaysian crafters, there are always local stores to shop for pretty stamps, such as Craft Haven, Scrap-n-Crop and many more.

Alternatively, you may also download free images from Google, print it, colour it and use it on your personal project. That's how I started. Try to search keywords like "free digital stamps" and you'll get what you want.
